Ignore the reviews.

67 replies 3722 views Edited Feb 21, 2015

This game is absolutely fantastic. I don't for the life of me understand why it has garnered so much criticism. The order wasn't trying to reinvent the wheel. It's visually stunning

but most importantly it is a solid game.

 

And as someone who writes for a small online magazine doing reviews, I can tell you this game deserves your attention borrow it rent it or support RAD and buy it. But don't sell yourself short.

I watched the "movie" on youtube. I experienced the story and loved it. Better yet, I didn't spend $60 to do it. Smiley Happy

Same here.  I watched the 60 dollar flick while eating a bag of microwave popcorn and drinking a coke.  Smiley Tongue

I can't wait to get back into it tonight. I'm at chapter 4 about to go down underground heading to the hospital. I'm enjoying it so far and think the game is worth it.

People who jump on bandwagons and follow reviews will just miss out. You will then hear them ranting and raving about the sequel. I don't know how people still have faith in the review system of most sources.

Considering the average movie is 90 minutes long and costs 10-15 dollars to see 60 dollars for a 9 hour movie isn't so bad. Plus it's interactive while movies are not.

I'm at the exact same spot, definitely can't wait to keep playing later tonight.

Lol I have a feeling this is where the creepy/ scary part may come in.

Though I was kinda dissappointed worth he first encounter with the beasts

Ill never trust reviews again. I always kind of knew that but I really learned with driveclub. I love that game, it's been my favorite this gen.

I played the order a little today at a friend's house. I'm picking it up tomorrow.

I just got up to chapter 8, or 9. This game is great. My score would be 8 to 9. I'm starting to thint that these reviewers didn't even play much of the game. I'm really into the story, this kinda thing is right up my alley, and the gameplay is challenging and fun. I'm just annoyed that people will overlook this because of some little pissy reviewers and haters who always wanted the game to fail.

The only problem I have is the game is moving along too quickly; I want it last longer. And even that can be seen as a good thing

I loved this game as well. I know it's shorter than other AAA games, but the length fit the story. Anything longer would have had too much filler. I can't wait for the sequel!
